Services provided include online workshops and face-to-face training in promising practices for technology integration, online and blended learning resources and training, electronic collaboration, educational resources and much more. In keeping with changing technologies, new research and advances in professional development and in an effort to ensure our adult educators have access to quality professional growth, OTAN announces a new opportunity for adult education agencies, including their administrators and teachers, through the Digital Leadership Academy (DLAC). This new program will combine OTAN's previous Academies (Technology Integration Mentoring Academy and the Online Teaching Academy) and offer the program for a full two years to ensure agencies can meet projected goals.
